How about a extra rolling ball that rolls across a map of the usa and where it stops will be the location of the winning jackpot.  Mmmmmmmmm

    Despite the numbers, huh?

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

    Lep

    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          No, the lottery would be run the same, selling alot of tickets.  But, only change would be a final ball that shows where the lucky ticket will be picked from.

            Yes, bigbear29, you are right, the luck goes traveling to a certain state and county and stays for a certain guy who is lucky enough to receive it into his pocket, lol!

            Like last week a guy in Milpitas, and another guy of last night in Alavado Nile won the MM jackets too.

            It is now properious in the Bay Areas! When will be the next return to San Leandro, or Oakland?

            Thanks for your kindness to visit my posting; and left me your warmness for my slow chewing! 

            Those who wants to win lottery is normal; and it is abnormal if anybody does not want to win!

              The real problem is that you guys from MO keep picking the wrong numbers pal.
              It's rather simple- pick the right numbers & the problem is solved.

                Ha,ha, Noise gate,

                Pick the wrong numbers are very common, MM consists too many (75) numbers is the main problem, so that every body picks the wrong numbers is no way to be avoided.   It might be only way is to get rid of the MM, change to buy only Super Lotto or Power Balls only, both of these only select from 47 or 59 numbers plus mega that is all. I think these two might be earier get to shoot right into the jacket pots.(my openion)

                  Yeah, everybody picks the wrong numbers. That's why there have been 5 jackpots and 7 winners in the past 4 months. It's too hard.

                    Dispite the numbers?  I don't understand.

                    If the rolling ball in your scenario in the OP picks the location of the winner how are yopu going to guarantee soeone in that area has the winning nunmbers?

                    Or are you skipping the numbers altogether?

                    Either way does not compute.

                    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                      The machines are computerized and we can send people into space using numbers. I'm sure the lottery people can figure out what  numbers are sent to each machine.

                        No disrespect here - but l have never heard of a major lottery winner from Oakland...period! It's not from  lack of trying, correct me if l am wrong- but nothing North of San Leandro has brought that Baby home.   ** In the Bay Area.
                        It's San Jose, Fremont, Milpitas, the  Peninsula,  Upper North Bay..but Never Oakland!
                        I wonder why that is?

                          Which machines do you think have computerized numbers?

                            I don't think he was talking about computerized numbers but that the numbers on tickets are reported electronically to Lottery HQ prior to the drawing.

                              And no one would want to play the lottery.  Its hard enough to get all the numbers correct but now you would have to be in the correct state?
